New Pizza and Wine bar “Basil” opening in Crown Heights

There is a new dairy restaurant in Crown Heights called Basil opening soon.  It is billing itself as a Pizza and Wine bar!  This is a pretty cool concept and I have not heard of it yet in the kosher world so I am excited to check it out!  I tried emailing them also and they didn’t contact me back! Looks like they aren’t interested in free PR!

I decided to meet up with an old friend here from my trip to Israel for dinner last night.  Since I keep fully kosher I figured it would be a good place to show off the “trendiest” kosher has to offer in Manhattan.  It’s a great place to go on a Thursday or Saturday night.. you will probably run into someone you know on a date!

Since we didn’t have a reservation they sat us at the worst table in the house – in the very front right behind the hostess.  I pleaded with the faux-hawked manager to give us a different open table but when I realized he wouldn’t budge I gave up.  That was pretty annoying because I hate sitting in a lame spot in a restaurant, I want to be in the middle of all the action.

Speaking of the workers, non of the employees seem to be Jewish.  Most of them are from some European country and one is even tattoo’d all over his body (ask him to see the tattoo on the inside of his mouth!)  They are usually quick to take orders but expect to wait a good while for your food to come out.  The larger your party the most likely some of the food doesn’t come out warm either.
